London: lobbyists demand full term abortion after mum imprisoned

The dramatic case of eight-month pregnant Carla Foster, jailed for having induced an abortion at home becomes a pretext for demanding abortion at full term. But, the tragic consequences of that abortion go unmentioned.

Africa resists: No to contraception, Yes to Humanae Vitae

The prophetic words of Paul VI in Humanae Vitae find confirmation first of all in Africa, victim of the neo-Malthusian attempts of the West, which offers aid subject to the acceptance of anti-values on sexuality and family. But in the Dark Continent a pro-life culture resists and is stronger than ideology.


The Reasonableness and Beauty of the Teaching of Humanae Vitae

The Reasonableness and Beauty of the Teaching of Humanae Vitae

From the timid acceptance of contraception to the generalized acceptance of abortion: the common root, underlines prof. John Haas, lies in considering procreation as an evil to be avoided. Hence the contradiction of a good (birth) considered evil and an evil (abortion) claimed as a right.

Humanae Vitae: bold, prophetic, and increasingly relevant

From sexual relations excluding children to children generated, or rather 'produced', excluding sex, to a future that by dint of manipulation will do away not only with the male-female duality, but with man himself. Only an integral anthropology will save us from the post-human drift: this is the perennial validity of Paul VI's encyclical, in the words of Cardinal Ladaria Ferrer.

Pro-abortion superheroes, evil masquerading as good

To publicise abortion and other dogmas of political correctness, the IPPF has come up with a campaign featuring six 'safe reproduction', anti-life, superheroes. Good and evil are thus reversed. But behind it there is an epic idea of the struggle for 'new rights'.

UK: another baby born from three biological parents using immoral technique

The BBC speaks of ‘Baby born from three people's DNA in UK first’. In reality, the technique of mitochondrial replacement has been practised for years and there are already 30 to 50 youngsters born this way worldwide. But the procedure contradicts natural law, alters genetic identity, objectifies the child, and exposes it to disease.

Assisted suicide: Paglia's OK destroys Magisterium

The president of the Pontifical Academy for Life Vincenzo Paglia has given his OK to the assisted suicide law from the columns of Renzi's newspaper Il Riformista. In a plethora of heresies and leaning on the liberalist drifts of current social conditions and widespread pluralism, the bishop openly contradicts the Magisterium and the pronouncements of the Italian Bishops' Conference, even going so far as to say that the Church does not own the truth on these issues.

Replacement babies, rent a womb comes with "guarantees"

Among the 46 guarantees offered by Gestlife, a company of surrogacy lawyers, is the restart of the surrogate uterus program should the baby die within two years of birth. It goes beyond the "satisfied or get a refund" formula. It’s the chilling confirmation babies are considered objects.

United Kingdom: silent prayer becomes thought crime

 

The House of Commons has definitively approved the Bill that creates buffer zones around "sensitive" services. It gives wide discretionary powers to the police and makes consensual conversations and silent prayers criminal acts. Some parliamentarians protest: an attack on freedom and democracy.

Isabel and Fr Sean acquitted but praying for life remains risky

Arrested for praying silently near an abortion clinic, the two Catholic and pro-life activists, are found "not guilty". A major victory against thought crime, but a law looms that will make it mandatory in England and Wales to ban people from approaching all abortion clinics.

Catholic priest arrested, pro-life prayer becomes a crime in England

Even a Catholic priest has been arrested in front of a Birmingham abortion clinic, meanwhile the case of Isabel Vaughan-Spruce remains unresolved. And the law that criminalises praying near an abortion facility is close to passing, violating the right to freedom of expression and religious freedom.
